Fake Facebook profiles of two BJP MLAs surface in Vadodara

Vadodara, May 15 Two BJP MLAs in Vadodara have been targeted by fake Facebook accounts following which both have urged the public through their official accounts not to interact with and report these fake profiles in any way.

Former state minister Manisha Vakil, BJP MLA from Wadi and Sayajiganj legislator Keyur Rokadia have reported that their official social media accounts have been duplicated.

Cyber ​​expert Mayur Bhusawalkar said political leaders often interact with their voters through social media, making it a prime target for people looking to exploit their popularity.

“Creating fake profiles of leaders is easy as all their details, including photos, are readily available online. However, these fraudulent attempts are quickly recognized due to their public presence.”

This incident is not an isolated incident as similar attempts to create fake social media accounts of political leaders in Vadodara have also taken place before.
